Growing up in Rochester, New York, Colby was around lacrosse at a very young age learning about the game from some of the best lacrosse minds and playing at some of the highest levels of lacrosse. As a young player, Colby was able to attend games at Irondequoit High School and see players such as Joe Walters play, while being a part of a program that has produced alumni legends such as Jeff Long (Navy and Team USA), Paul Cantabene (MLL Baltimore Bayhawks), Andrew Whipple (Maryland), and Joe Walters (Maryland and Team USA). Irondequoit lacrosse teams have won 28 championship titles and have produced 30 High School All-Americans, plus a long list of college lacrosse coaches.

Over the span of his youth and high school playing career, Coach Colby had the opportunity to play in the Irondequoit youth program and study the game under some of most knowledgeable coaches in lacrosse. These influences helped him become a three-year starter at Irondequoit High School before playing Division I lacrosse at Canisius College.

At Canisius, Coach Colby was a member of the 2012 MAAC Championship team that competed in the 2012 NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Tournament. Coach Wehner left Canisius College with a bachelor degree in English and a Masters in Sports Administration.

Following college, Coach Colby served as an intern for the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) and soon became the Director of Championships for the MAAC. As a Director of Championships at the MAAC, Colby oversaw daily operations for all intercollegiate sports and was the Championship Director for his respective sports, including Cross Country, Field Hockey, Men’s Soccer, Women’s Soccer, Water Polo, Swimming and Diving, Men’s Lacrosse, Women’s Lacrosse, Women’s Rowing and Track and Field.

With a goal to work to work with young athletes, Colby was given the opportunity to work at Rider University as the Coordinator of Athletic Events and Equipment Room Manager. At Rider, Colby managed all the intercollegiate events at Rider University, overseeing all student worker event staff to coordinate the events from start to finish.
